Daisy, otherwise known as Daze, keeps hearing her dead mother's voice. Sometimes it's because of her dad, who likes to watch old home movies when he can't sleep. Sometimes it's because of her brother, who was too young to remember Mom, and needs to be reminded by looking at photographs and watching videos. Sometimes it might just be her mind trying to work out what her therapist would call "issues." But this time, it is none of those things. It's something much more wonderful and much more terrifying, something Daze never thought possible. And it might allow Daze to do what she couldn't years ago: save her mother's life.

Rune Michaels, the visionary author of Genesis Alpha, plunges headfirst into the waters where science, family, and memory meet, and emerges with a powerful and fascinating story about loss and survival that challenges everything we think we know about the people we love.

Review: The Reminder

User Review  - Mckenzie - Goodreads

The Reminder is a peculiar book to say the least. I was not a fan of this book, but I do have to admit that it did contain a plot twist that was hard to see coming. If you are looking for a book that is strange in itself, The Reminder may be for you. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend this book. Read full review

User Review  - Greg - Goodreads

At first I thought that this book was quite a strange novel but as I progressed I grew to like it. I liked how much the author gave the reader insights about Daze's thoughts and what went through her mind throughout the story. Read full review
